CNY Special 2: Welcoming Year of the Monkey at President’s Restaurant
And though I don’t claim to be a food blogger. Ano ito? KAINAN NA NAMAAAN? ;)) After the CNY Part 1, here comes Part 2. And brace yourselves, may Part 3 pa to follow, hehehe.
Henyway, do you still remember the Super Friends? We used to spend so much time together here in our happy little village. May swimming parties, may mga pot luck on the side, may cake fights tuwing birthdays.. oh those were the days. The husbands were friends, hence the wives became friends, ergo the kids became friends – err’body happy. But then, life happened. Everyone became busy -with work, with school. The kids grew up, grew apart. Weekly gatherings became monthly, monthly gatherings became quarterly. Ngayon, kung swertehin man, yearly nalang yata, lol.
It has been a tradition for the Super Friends to go to Binondo for the Chinese New Year. 3 years in a row na yata. So Kap made sure the tradition continues rain or shine, busy o hindi. Even without the dragon & lion dance, even without the ang paos. Basta ang kainan, tuloy pa rin! :P As usual, we hied off to President Grand Palace Restaurant in Ongpin.

2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey, starting from February 8 (Chinese New Year), and ending on January 27, 2017 (Chinese New Year’s Eve). Kap was born in the year of the Earth Monkey.
If you were born under the Year of the Monkey, these are supposedly the “unlucky things” that monkeys should avoid. Unlucky colors: red, pink | Unlucky numbers: 2 and 7 | Unlucky directions: south, southeast | Unlucky months: Chinese lunar months 7 and 11 (July & November)
Great unexpected fortune is predicted to find its way to Monkeys in 2016, so they will not have to worry about food and clothes. The best months for them to make their fortune will be the second and twelfth Chinese lunar months, during which they should make full use of their time to invest and cash in. They should avoid gambling, speculating, and collecting illegal or greedy gains, or they will lose everything they have, especially in the third Chinese lunar month. They should also guard against becoming poor due to greed. Monkeys should not show off their wealth, or they will be persecuted by others. CLICK HERE to read more forecast. ;)
Monkey, monkey, and more monkey! What I bought for friends in lieu of tikoy which they can buy anytime, anywhere, anyway. Aren’t these novelty items just the cutest? <3 Available at Rustan’s. :)
